BACKGROUND: Psoriatic arthropathy (PA) is a seronegative arthropathy with a 5-20% prevalence among psoriatics. In recent years, cardiovascular abnormalities have been shown in patients with seronegative arthropathies. OBJECTIVE/AIM: Since echocardiography is a non-invasive method to evidence cardiac abnormalities, we planned a study to evaluate heart involvement in subjects with psoriatic athropathy using this method. METHODS: A total of 21 subjects (15 women, six men) aged from 34 to 71 years were involved in this study...

The diagnostic and treatment strategies related to hemophilia are rapidly evolving. This article focuses on some of the issues of importance. Diagnostic advances in molecular genetics are reviewed by Dr. Ginsburg in Section I, including the current state of knowledge regarding the mutations responsible for hemophilia, with reference to the potential clinical applications of DNA diagnosis and prenatal testing. Within the area of new therapeutic approaches in hemophilia, recombinant factor VIII and factor IX concentrates, their use and availability are addressed by Dr...

BACKGROUND: The definitive diagnosis of gout is best established by demonstration of monosodium urate (MSU) crystals in the synovial fluid or biopsy. Fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of tophi can play a crucial role in diagnosis. CASES: A 36-year-old chronic alcoholic male developed subcutaneous nodules on both malleoli without a history of arthropathy and with normal serum uric acid levels. FNAC of the nodules demonstrated stacks and sheaves of needle-shaped crystals of MSU...

In 1868, J.M. Charcot published his memoir "sur quelques athropathies qui paraissent dépendre d'une lésion du cerveau ou de la moelle épinière "based on 4 cases of tabes dorsalis. This work was subsequently developed and presented in London in 1881 when Sir James Paget acknowledged the significance of this entity. "Charcot's joint" has come in use to mean that particular joint disease which results, from nervous lesions, whatever its nature. A controversy lasted between those who thought, e.g. Volkman, that mechanical trauma is the significant pathophysiological factor and those, e...

Synovial tissue has been examined by electron microscopy from patients suffering from either sero-positive or sero-negative inflammatory arthropathies to allow direct comparison of the ultrastructural changes found in these groups and to confirm and extend observations previously made in a smaller group of sero-negative arthropathies. Both groups have been compared with material from healthy controls. The sero-positive group comprised 13 cases of 'definite' or 'classical' rheumatoid arthritis. The sero-negative group consisted of 9 cases of arthritis secondary to Crohn's disease (3); Reiter's syndrome (2); Whipple's disease (1); Behcet's disease (1); Wegener's granulomatosis (1) and ankylosing spondylitis (1)...

Seventeen children and two adolescents, aged 6 months to 20 9/12 years, with poor risk leukemia were treated with a total of 38 sequential high-dose ARA-C-Asparaginase courses (HIDAC-ASNase). Each course was followed by profound myelosuppression. Fever occurred in 13.2% and infectious complications in 7.9% of courses. Other side effects were vomiting (81.6%), drug fever (55.3%), mucositis and diarrhoea (28.9%), mild hepatotoxicity (26.3%), exanthemas (18.4%), conjunctivitis (15.8%), local ASNase hypersensitivity (7...

Pulse polarography with anodic stripping has shown the presence of very high levels (2 005 microgram/kg and 6 760 microgram/kg) of bismuth in bone of two patients treated with bismuth, one parenterally and the other orally. The presence of high levels of bismuth in bone of these patients must be considered in the etiology of their athropathies. Pulse polarography with anodic stripping now permits very precise measurement of bismuth impregnating bones.
